Rich in gratitude. Every. Day. I love backpacking and this is where I share my backpacking nerdery with the hope that it can help others in their outdoor adventures!

I’m also an entrepreneur specializing in technology, web design and lead generation. In another life I was a California Real Estate Broker and an Equities Trader holding the Series 7, 63, 55 and 24 Securities Licenses. I’m also fortunate enough to call myself a Black Rock Ranger. I left the World Trade Center three minutes before the first plane hit, so I must still be here for something amazing!

I LOVE BASS MUSIC, road trips, sailing, Burning Man, the Grateful Dead, MMA, Colorado, Hawaii, backpacking, ukuleles, Jiu Jitsu, vintage Schwinns, hammocks, vintage tube amps and guitars and all things relating to classic Americana. I have an extra Uke, want to jam? Cheers!
